Chances are if you’re looking at this site then either your current cleaners have let you down once too often or you are taking the leap from having your own staff clean your premises to delegating that task to a professional cleaning service.

Our cleaners are continually confronted with varying degrees of biohazards and play a major role in infection control in the commercial properties we clean. This applies not just to our customers in the medical industry but also includes our customers in the hospitality industry and through to our commercial office customers.
The level of bugs and germs we encounter relies heavily on the particular cleaning task we are performing. Coughs, sneezing or the neglect of washing hands thoroughly can cause the spread of viruses and bacteria throughout the workplace. When cleaning medical facilities or washrooms in any establishment, our staff are frequently exposed to and trained to manage Biological Hazards in the form of body fluids such as blood, vomit, urine or faeces and discarded needles.
It is our practice to pay special attention to areas that people touch which spread those dastardly bugs and germs throughout the workplace. Such as cleaning in the toilet – the flushers; toilet seats, handles, taps, light switches. It’s by focusing on the detail that our cleaners can maintain a clean and healthy working environment for our customers.
Our cleaning staff, armed with protective gloves for their own personal protection, are supplied with the appropriate cleaning equipment (colour coded to minimise cross contamination), disinfectants (Safety Data Sheets are provided) and training to control and eliminate the spread of viruses and bacteria.
Finally, in the interests of personal protection and hygiene, we recommend to our customers that they encourage their staff to practice good hygiene by washing hands thoroughly, ideally with a sanitising gel.
And what a wise organisation the EIU must be, recognising Melbourne as the ideal destination. Let’s face it, they had good reason. There’s the arts, culture, cafes, restaurants, laneways, parks, gardens, gotta love the climate… four seasons in one day. There’s Melbourne’s city precincts and inner-city suburbs that have their own distinctive character. Not to mention being sports capital of the world.
That’s why we at Hillson Cleaning take pride in the work we do. Playing our small role in helping Melbourne show the world it’s best face. Cleaning the Melbourne we love.

Given the busy period we have encountered, I would like to start off the New Year with a few important messages.

‘Tis the season to be jolly’… Yes, it’s that time of year again. Santa’s Ho-Hoing, whilst children count down the days in anticipation for that special day of the year. Christmas Day.
Christmas in the cleaning industry is our busiest time of year. As we specialise in the hospitality industry our cleaners have to step up a gear.
Of course for everyone the lead up to Christmas can seem like there just isn’t enough hours in a day. There’s the obligatory christmas shopping. Trying to find those perfect presents for family and friends in the overcrowded shopping centres, with the overcrowded car parks.
There’s the office luncheons and parties where we tend to overindulge ourselves in food and drink to excess. This tends to be repeated on Christmas Day among family and friends.
Otherwise known as the ‘silly season’ this time of year everything seems chaotic, so I thought a few helpful tips maybe warranted.
Make a list of all the gifts you wish to buy before you go shopping
Try and get your Christmas shopping done early, don’t leave it till the last minute
If planning a Christmas luncheon at a restaurant then make sure to book early
Enjoy yourself at the office party but try not to be the one wearing the lampshade on the head or crying in the washroom
Don’t drink to excess and don’t pig out, know your limits
If preparing Christmas lunch/dinner at home don’t do everything yourself – delegate tasks to other family members
From everyone at Hillson Cleaning have a Merry Christmas.
I’m currently going through the motions of giving the household fridge a decent clean, so thought I’d outline the steps one takes to clean the fridge and how to maintain it leaving it hygienically clean. Considered to being the hardest working and most important appliance in the house, the refrigerator which operates around the clock, plays a vital role in the health and wellbeing of your family.
I’ve come across some sordid fridges in my time, ones that are covered in mould and grime and reeking from an awful stench. The fridge is constantly bombarded with drips and spills, together with food that have passed their used by dates, resulting in bacteria and bad odours. These come about due to normal day to day activities within the house and can be resolved by following some easy tips.
I’ve waited until the day before a big shopping day, where much of the food from the fridge has been consumed, doing it when the fridge is fully stocked after a big shop makes the job so much harder. So let’s roll up our sleeves and get started:
To get started you’ll need gloves, a bucket of water with disinfectant, rags, sponge, scourer, and spray bottle of disinfectant. As a safety tip, be sure to turn off the fridge at the power point.
Empty the refrigerator of all its contents, disposing of food that contain mould, give off an abnormal stench or have passed the used by date.
Fill the kitchen sink up with water and detergent then remove all the shelves and compartments from the fridge. Place them in the sink and clean thoroughly using the kitchen scourer and sponge. Wipe down all food containers, where possible remove the food and clean inside the container as well as out.
Return to the inside of the fridge and begin cleaning the inside starting from the very top and work your way down the walls of the fridge, cleaning all crevices and compartments making use of your bucket of water, disinfectant, sponge, rags and scourer for those hard to remove stains. Finally it is time to mop up the bottom of the fridge with the rags before disinfecting it.
Clean the fridge externally, start by removing all items that tend to accumulate on the top of the fridge. Spray and wipe clean the fridge, once again starting from the top and working your way down. Be sure to clean in and around the handle and any other crevices that can collect grime.
With the cleaning complete it is time to Dry and return all shelves and containers to the fridge. Don’t forget to turn fridge back on and replace the food and drinks. To prolong shelf life make sure they are stored to allow proper air flow throughout and visit your manufacturers refrigerator manual to determine where best to store certain food types.
Now that the fridge is clean inside and out it is up to you to maintain the hygiene and cleanliness of the fridge – ensure the fridge seals completely when the door is closed – check the rubber seal for any damage, seal food containers properly, dispose of unwanted food stuffs regularly and clean up fresh spills as they occur.
Follow these instructions and you too will have a fridge that is clean and hygienic, with food that is safe for your entire family to consume whenever those pangs of hunger hit.
Spring has sprung and the Spring Racing Carnival is well underway in Melbourne. With The Melbourne Cup and other feature race days like Oakes Day just around the corner its high time I gave you all a few tips… cleaning tips that is.

WhIle the worlds focus is currently directed firmly on London 2012, perhaps it’s time for us at Hillson to reflect on some of the ideals of our great athletes and how those ideals may in turn relate to our own business and future success.
An athlete expels blood, sweat and tears in order to reach their ultimate goal of a berth at an Olympic Games. They will toil for hours on end, year after year, determined to succeed; hone their natural abilities; maintain focus and direction; sought out guidance; surround themselves with experience; implement regimented schedules; take advantage of new technologies; compete against rivals to improve competitiveness; and visualise success to achieve the result they yearn for.
The objective of the athletes gruelling training and preparation is designed to get the edge on their competition. To prepare for that moment in time when all they have worked on over the years will come together to enable the athlete to perform at their optimum.
It takes 20 years to become an overnight success.
Being successful in business will require many of the same attributes. Possessing that determination to succeed; attaining and enhancing our skills; guiding staff and passing on ones own experience; implement staff routines that will achieve results; search for and introduce technologies that will smooth-line business procedures or attract customers; learn our rivals strengths and weaknesses; and visualise our future success.
Let’s endeavour to do our best and become the Office Cleaning Gold Medal favourites.
